Statement

For over a decade, I have been creating unique sculptures that capture attention and engage the imagination through simple design and kinetic movement.

My sculptures interpret nature's genius, a balance of complex function and simplistic beauty.

Inspired by organic forms and sacred geometry, my pieces are multi-layered and deconstructed. The underlying mathematical language can be broken down into numerical sequences that, when charted, create symbols that echo their surroundings and streamline harmoniously into human consciousness.

I incorporate metals and glass into my sculptures– materials taken from the earth– and refine them into elegant curves, giving the feeling of movement in their static rest.

My pieces create a union of ease between modern design and nature, blending fluidly with their environment and elements. The feeling is heightened by kinetic factors that accentuate the shared effects of the environment, as both sculpture and viewer react to the same force.

I live and work in Seattle. I have owned and operated a studio since 1995. I studied Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado, but my work primarily developed through experimentation and instinct.

I have enjoyed working with a wide spectrum of clients including government public art programs, private developers, and individuals. In creating site specific sculptures I have served beside engineers, architects, project managers, and groups in all phases of construction. I utilize computer design programs that interface with industry standards. This allows me to communicate clearly and continuously through the conceptual stage to the coordination of installation. It would be my pleasure to work with you.
